Most machines work front-to-back. The Helix turns tradition on its side— literally. With lateral (or side-to-side) movement, and now 3D, you use more muscles, which means you burn more fat than during a traditional workout– in the same amount of time. Science proves it. Plus Helix’s patented motion tones your butt, core and inner/outer thighs better than old-fashioned cardio machines. The patented lateral motion activates more muscles—more quickly—than other machines, all while burning more fat and calories than old-fashioned technology, according to a comprehensive 2011 University of Tampa study. Plus, the Helix Lateral Trainer can deliver the equivalent of an hour-long workout in just 30 minutes.
Like all Helix models, the HLT3000-3D is clinically shown to provide increased muscle activation and fat burning.* It works the body in all three planes of human motion and targets the muscles that traditional cardio ignores, such as the obliques with 55% more core activation, the inner thighs with 42% more activation, and the outer thighs with 50% more activation, 40% more Glute activation and 23% Faster Achievement of Target Heart Rate. All while strengthening and protecting your knees.
